this week. secretary of state john kerry said it would be a grave mistake for russia to embark on any kind of military intervention in ukraine. kerry spoke hours after vladimir putin put troops in the western military district and the central military district on alert. the western district borders ukraine. but russia insists the announcement has nothing to do with the events unfolding in ukraine. we have more now from moscow. >> reporter: the announcement of these military alerts has raised speculation that they are linked with what is going on you rain. that's speculation that is being dismissed by by russia's military minister. they say it has not tag with ukraine, but it's russian forces being pushed through these unannounced tests. basically making sure that the army, the navy, and the air force can react to any perceived threats as quickly as they should be able to. now they did say that the athleteathletesfleetsare being . now, said what is going on with the ukraine there are probably people who are fairly high up in the defense ministry and in the asian government as well. at a tim

kerry and -- was absolutely right and the president was absolutely right in telling russian president putin that he he better think twice before he considers any kind of military intervention in ukraine. that is not something that can be or should be tolerated, and russia must understand that it cannot be a business as usual. if they make any military moves into ukraine, it's going to cost them a great deal in their relationships with the united states and with our european allies in the european union. it can't be business as usual. which leads me to iran. we are in very delicate negotiations with iran right now. the one thing that everybody agrees the p-5 plus one is that at the end of the day iran must not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. i have been very critical of the iranian regime through the years and continue to be so. what i. me especially is that while they are negotiating with us, they are continuing to wreak havoc in all different parts of the world. iran remains the leading supporter of terrorism throughout the world. in fact, if we look just next door into syria, a
